Witnesses claimed the girl stabbed the 29-year-old man in the neck yesterday following an altercation before turning herself in at the nearby police station.
They said the girl found the man cleaning a popular eatery at the trading centre and accidentally stepped on a section of the floor he had already cleaned.
The man, a shoeshiner who was stationed next to the eatery, had been given the work of cleaning it up in the evenings.
Witnesses said a quarrel ensued between the two and the man slapped the girl twice. The girl is suspected to have left the eatery to go buy a knife before returning to stab the man from behind. She then turned herself in at Mugogosiek Police Station.
Boito location chief John Cheruiyot, who was among the first to respond at the scene of the attack, called in the police.
He told The Standard that when he went to record a statement with the police, he found the girl at the station.

According to the administrator, the girl told the police that the man had been making sexual advances on her, and that she turned herself in out of fear of reprisals from the public. More witnesses said the man had been trying to befriend the girl who turned down his advances.
“The two have had fights in the past as the man had been trying to woo the girl,” said one witness.
Konoin Sub-county Police Commander Alex Shikondi said investigations into the killing have been launched.
